Destination weddings call for wow factor! So when Jess + Jeff approached us to create their big day here in Oz we jumped for joy! With a design brief of a relaxed, modern, Australian getaway vibe we looked no further than Cloverdel, situated in Victoria’s ridiculously picturesque countryside.

There’s no surprise, that when you’re working with foodies who have their own organic food business back home, that a ‘farm-to-table’ concept was inevitably high up on the list. So the couple enlisted the catering geniuses over at Food and Desire to bring this concept to life.

Positioned underneath the willow trees by the lake, Jess and Jeff’s ceremony backdrop grew ground up. Ivory toned florals, soft textured pampass grass, and pops of blue delphinium all nestled amongst cascading wild foliages. Picture perfect!

Guests then moved into the pre dinner drinks space where a seating chart of stacked fruit crates overflowing with fresh herbs and florals sat pretty in the garden while guests sipped on cocktails, devoured canapes and casually made friends with the wombats and wallabies in the Australian native petting zoo. Yeah, you heard us. “What’s an Australian vacay without a petting zoo right?”

Contemporary furniture pieces were selected to compliment the modern Australian design.

Layered raw sandstone was the base for our textured tablescapes. A bed of earthy moss and native foliages were teamed with them hopelessly-romantic, dusty pink roses and dancing florals.

The epic custom 5-metre linear rope installation took centre stage, surrounded by rolling dunes of moss, florals and trees creating the ultimate pop up garden!

It was a party of epic proportions and a total memory-maker for Jess, Jeff and all their family and friends. Thank you Jess & Jeff for trusting us with your big day we had a ball!

We’re very excited to announce we are the exclusive event designers and managers for Cloverdel. For all enquiries please get in contact here.

A heart stopping private property was the backdrop for Emel + Ersan’s big day. The design was bursting with greenery, ivory tones and luxe marble textures to create the perfect vibe for their relaxed celebrations.

The gorgeous couple exchanged vows under the lush four post arch which was then used as a canopy for guests to lounge under for the remainder of the evening.

From this lounge area guests were then welcomed into the marquee with a personalised Emel + Ersan entry feature, adorned with floral arrangements. The centrepiece to the reception (and our favourite part) was of course the beautiful bridal installation. The large steel linear structure, with intertwined foliage and florals framed the elegantly styled bridal table to create a truly picturesque feature. Oh, and in case you were wondering our second favourite part… was without-a-doubt the four-tiered marble finished cake. #foodporn.

We’re very stoked to have met these amazing humans, and have to worked in-tune with them to create something *this* special. Emel + Ersan, you’re incredible.

Sometimes projects start small and evolve, but Ivy & Calvin’s started huge and then just got M-A-S-S-I-V-E!

We’re talking about a one week bump in involving 42 of our crew, 1500 bunches of flowers and foliage, 5000 faux delphiniums to completely transform a slice of lawn at The Mansion Hotel in Werribee into an enchanting dining venue. Our 5am starts and late finishes were all worth the end result.

The ceremony floral arch was an abundance of white and soft pink blooms that required the delicateness of our 15+ floral army.

The colour palette transitioned into dramatic shades of lavender, purple and fuchsia for the reception held at Werribee Mansion. Guests were greeted with signature cocktails from the marble bar, another stunning feature of this decadent marquee complete with wood floors and surrounding glass walls.

After pre dinner drinks, the curtains were drawn and the main dining space was revealed….{Insert sound of jaws dropping here}.

Above the decked out dining tables and beautiful cameo chairs hung a 17.5 metre dripping floral heaven. The beauty of the roof made only more luminous by the stunning chandeliers especially sourced from Brisbane.

Ivy & Calvin’s dreams were big and with their complete trust we were able translate their vision into one epic and smooth production. The highlight as with all our weddings was seeing their beaming faces all night long. Bravo to our amazing crew who are fiercely committed to the details and going above and beyond.
